More Insanity In Loudoun County Schools, Counselor Accused Of ‘Indecent Liberties’ With Student
Once Glenn Youngkin takes office he needs to immediately begin in a probe into what is going on inside the Loudoun County public schools system.
Not only did the school board try to cover up a rape one of their school counselors is facing charges for having an “inappropriate relationship” with a student.
Investigators report Ann Barrett, 42, was involved in a relationship with a student. That relation went on for two years before school officials informed law enforcement.
In light of all the controversy the school district has hired a firm to investigate Loudoun County Public Schools.
“We believe we have followed all mandatory reporting protocols and aided law enforcement to the fullest extent allowed in all investigations regarding these matters. We acknowledge that these matters need to be fully reviewed,” Loudoun county Public Schools Superintendent Scott Ziegler said in an email.
Rightfully, Parents and residents are furious over how the school system has handled both crises.
Virginia Governor Elect Glenn Youngkin has promised to bring transparency and accountability to the Loudoun County School Board.
“A young girl was sexually assaulted in her school, and the administrators, those who were trusted with not only her education but her safety, tried to cover it up,” Youngkin declared in a speech. “And they quietly moved the offender, an offender being prosecuted for sexual assault, to another school, where he was able to do it again. Two young girls have been sexually assaulted because our system, our system failed to protect them.”
“As a Virginian, I’m heartbroken for these girls and their families,” Youngkin said. “I’m heartbroken at how their government leaders failed them. As a father, I am ignited with an unwavering resolve to not just fix this but to hold those who have failed our children accountable.”
Youngkin’s statement was before it was learned a High School guidance counselor was allegedly having a relationship with a student.
In 2018, Lindsay R. Mages, 28, Loudoun County elementary school teacher was also charged with participating in an inappropriate relationship with a child that “caused or created a mental injury.”
